DAMIANO LENZI (ITA): DOUBLE SILVER AS EXTRA
After the two gold medals in the individual and the team races, the strong Italian scored twice again. In the vertical race, he tried to catch victory by attacking the leader throughout the second half of the competition. Even though he remained second, he can be satisfied with a maximum performance he threw out and the outcome of it. In the relay, Lenzi and his team colleagues stepped on the podium again: with the second rank. Lenzi himself as the final runner brought tension back into the race. By only four seconds the ‘Squadra Azzurri’ realized the silver medal in the end.
Damiano Lenzi will be immortalized as the most successful athlete of 2017’s world championships with two gold and two silver medals.
